TSN.ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. Rankings were weighted evenly between separate lists made by TSN Radio host and soccer analyst Gareth Wheeler as well as TSN.ca's soccer editors.

1. Chelsea (Last Week-1)

A massive performance for Chelsea as they drubbed Arsenal 6-0 to put further pressure on their London rivals.  Oscar had the major impact with a goal in each half.

2. Manchester City (LW-2)

Two huge victories helped keep Manchester City in the thick of the title race.  They opened with a 5-0 drubbing of Fulham before picking up their third consecutive victory at Old Trafford over Manchester United, winning 3-0 in the Manchester Derby.

3. Liverpool (LW-3)

Six points keeps Liverpool hot on Arsenal's tail as they won both matchups this week.  After taking a wild 6-3 victory over Cardiff City thanks to a Luis Suarez hat trick and a pair of goals from defender Martin Skrtel, Liverpool beat Sunderland 2-1 at Anfield.

4. Arsenal (LW-4)

A tough week for Arsenal as they were well beaten 6-0 at the hands of Chelsea before a Mathieu Flamini 90th minute own goal cost them a win in a 2-2 draw with Swansea.

5. Everton (LW-5)

A pair of victories keeps Everton right in the thick of the race for European football as they beat Swansea City 3-2 before blanking Newcastle 3-0 in midweek.

6. Tottenham (LW-6)

After falling behind two goals to Southampton, Christian Eriksen scored twice and Gylfi Sigurdsson provided the injury time winner as Tottenham escaped with a 3-2 victory.

7. Manchester United (LW-7)

It was an up and down week for United who earned a big 2-0 victory over West Ham United over the weekend thanks to a brace from Wayne Rooney, before falling 3-0 at home to City in the Manchester Derby.

8. Southampton (LW-8)

Sent ahead 28 minutes into the game, Southampton conceded three goals, including an injury time decider as they lost 3-2 to Tottenham.

9. Newcastle United (LW-9)

Papiss Cisse scored an injury time winner to snatch a 1-0 victory for Newcastle against Crystal Palace.  Newcastle would then go on to fall 3-0 at home to Everton in their mid-week fixture.

10. Stoke City (LW-11)

Peter Odemwingie, Peter Crouch, Steven Nzonzi and Geoff Cameron all found the net for Stoke as they overcame an early goal to romp to a 4-1 victory.

11. Aston Villa (LW-10)

Christian Benteke opened the scoring in the fifth minute but Aston Villa were punished by Stoke City in a 4-1 loss.

12. West Ham United (LW-13)

After a weekend 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, West Ham picked up a 2-1 home victory over Hull to earn three points on the week.

13. Hull City (LW-12)

It was a two game, three-point week for Hull as they earned a 2-0 victory over West Brom, before losing 2-1 to West Ham in a midweek fixture.

14. Swansea City (LW-14)

A single point is all Swansea would get out of two fixtures and they earned it late in the second fixture. After falling 3-2 to Everton, an injury time own goal gifted the Swans a 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

15. Norwich City (LW-16)

Robert Snodgrass and Alexander Tettey scored first half goals to lead Norwich to a 2-0 victory over Sunderland.

16. West Bromwich Albion (LW-15)

17. Crystal Palace (LW-18)

Crystal Palace conceded an injury time marker to Newcastle as they fell 1-0 at St. James' Park on the weekend.

18. Sunderland (LW-17)

A tough week for Sunderland as they failed to pick up any points in either match they played.  They started with a 2-0 loss at the hands of Sunderland before a mid-week, 2-1 setback to Liverpool.

19. Fulham (LW-19)

Fulham were beaten handily by Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, falling 5-0.

20. Cardiff City (LW-20)
